Time to give your impressions of that WMU product.

Heard he has struggled? True / False?

He has struggled but I feel that he has quick feet and hands and will be doing much better by mid-season. He has a nonstop motor and on Thurs. game I saw him always near the ball. Once he gets his bearings and the game slows down for him, he'll be fine.

He's definitely a work in progress but that was to be expected right? He's STILL a rookie and it takes time to adjust to the NFL.

I do think his tattoos are about the ugliest things I've ever seen though. Yuck. I can't imagine what would possess somebody to do that to themself.

Prolly got them to scare the other players,,, ya know mental intimidation,,, (kinda scares me). Na but i think Babin will come around soon enough and i see him play with a lot of intensity which is always a start to beign a great football player !

Well hopefully the fact that we got Payne, Walker, and Smith on the line now will help him a little. The 3 guys take up a lotta room payne looks like a human bull dozer out there. So maybe with them starting also it should help him ! But it'll still be a WHILE before we can call babin a dominant pass rusher.

Babin is the illustrated man of the NFL. He looks at home on the football field even if his successes so far have been limited. He has terrific upside and will keep climbing, keep striving & keep sacking QB's. I was shocked as many others when the Texans made the big trade to move up in the draft. Looks like they got what they wanted and everything is gonna be just fine, thank you very much for asking.

I think he'll have his share of rookie mistakes, but he seems to be progressing pretty good thus far. You can definately tell he is one of those players that have good instincts, but he's still getting used to the speed of the game. I think he'll be great in passing situations when they bring him and Peek down to the line as DE, and move Smith and Walker inside. Still a little shaky in coverage, but I think he'll adjust by mid season. Keep an eye out for Charlie Anderson too. He's the DE out of Ole Miss that we drafted to play OLB too. He seems to be adjusting pretty well too, and could be a force on special teams.
